Update 060915 by TheVirtualDragon
Update 060915
First upload in a while

I got the biggest monitor in the world so I can headshot noscope 420 in higher res.
No new icon themes seem to be being made so this is just Captiva here.
The code in the screenshot is a random entity component management game design system engine I made over the holidays which like all my projects ended abruptly and broken but I'm including it here so I can look like a l337 hax0r.
Gnome Shell is Arc Gtk is Ceti, Wall is…

BTW, Iris will eventually be updated...All 3 versions as well...I'm waiting for Gtk 3.18 first and then I will probably release the full on redesign I had planned as little bits over time. Project may see some inactivity due to working and stuff unfortunately, but I'll try not to completely abandon it.

Dual Monitors Hell Yeah by TheVirtualDragon
Dual Monitors Hell Yeah
I've had dual monitors for months now, but I realised I'd never posted a screenshot of both of them in action.

Edit: Wallpaper - <da:thumb id="201361983">
Update to just say that both the Iris themes have broken the 10,000 download barrier, in just 3 months! In total, this means that there have been 25,000 downloads of an Iris variant! I'm being told that this is actually a pretty big number for the short amount of time it's been open for the public which seems strangely strange to me for various reasons.

Also, have I mentioned another Gtk theme and an Iris variant I'm working on? You might not get to see it very soon because school is taking up my time horrendously and will continue to do so for at least another 2 years, which means Iris and indeed future projects may get slower updates (once every 3 or 4 months)...

Hey people. I'm a teenager who is obsessed with computers and exploding stuff.
Along with this, I also happen to be epic and awesome.

I just wanted to say that after looking through your gallery, I feel like your UI design is the best paradigm shift since Apple made the first home computer. Thank you so much for your work.
TheVirtualDragon Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
That's a huge compliment, sir. I personally believe that my UI design is fairly average, and would not go to such lengths as to compare it to something as legendary as Apple's work, but thank you, I appreciate it a lot :)
